THE COWBOY AND THE ANGEL
Social worker Renee and developer Duke face off over the future of a Detroit building that's illegally housing six runaways. When Renee lets Duke in on the secret, he helps her to get all the kids homes for the holidays. Duke wins her heart with his treatment of the children, but can he convince her to forget her past and give his love a chance? Packed with details about the Detroit area and the challenges of social work, The Cowboy and the Angel (4.5), by Marin Thomas, is a heartwarming story. The standout supporting characters will have readers clamoring for spin-off stories, but Thomas deserves special props for writing six children and teenagers whose attitudes and actions are believable!
